you're following it like we are. it is so, so important. wasn't to bri i want to bring in joe johns. president obama already put not just one but two justices on the current court. you know, reading into the supreme court tea leaves if you will, does that give us a pretty good idea as to who might be on the short list, if and when he's re-elected, and a vacancy perhaps pops open. >> well, i think so. you never know in these things, brooke, but if president obama were re-elected and got the opportunity to select a replacement, one of the names, interesting enough, that we have been hearing a lot is kamala harris, the california attorney general, also mentioned as a possible nominee for the united states attorney general if eric holder were to step down. diana wood, now, this is a name we have heard before. a lot of people thought she was a lock for the last supreme court nomination. she was from chicago. so her name, likely to come up again if the president gets the opportunity. and there is one other one too that you haven't heard too much about, name is jacqueline nguyn. so, you kn

obama did pretty well in virginia beach narrowly losing virginia beach county to john mccain. this is a strong veteran area which normally goes for republicans. mitt romney has to win here and president obama is here trying to make sure that it and virginia are out of his reach. >> so when you say mitt romney has to win here, what do the newspapers say so far, how have the polls been looking and where do they stand today? >> well, right now what we're looking at according to our latest cnn poll of polls, which is considering a lot of polls and averaging them, 50%-44% barack obama in the lead. so he has a single digit lead. that's something that the obama campaign is happy about. but that isn't really a comparable enough lead where they would be saying this is in the bag or something like this. the other thing you have to consider is that virginia is where you've got a marquee senate race taking place. tim kaine, former dnc chair, facing off against republican george allen, former governor, former senator. and this is a race remember virginia 2006 determined that democrats would have the

plenty of conservative republicans, isolationists as john mccain calls them, like senator rand paul of kentucky, they want to eliminate all u.s. foreign aid saming t saying the u.s. simply can't afford it. i think this will be a debate going forward whether or not to continue foreign aid to a lot of developing countries down the road. >> now i am going to run a sound bite and it's of that very controversial moment yesterday when the president, though very busy in new york today, made a choice to go on "the view" instead of hold bilateral meetings. here is something that barbara walters asked him that was very meaty and his response. let's have a listen. >> what it be disastrous for the country if mitt romney were elected? >> well, you know, i think america's so strong and we've got so much going for us that we can survive a lot, but the american people don't want to just survive. we want everybody to thrive. we want folks to have a shot at success, and so the question then just becomes whose policies are more likely to lead us to where we want to go. >> you know, wolf blitzer, i thi
